Harrison and Samples named top senior athletes for 2004-05

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College has announced its 2004-05 athletic award winners. The awards were presented at the annual athletic ceremony held at the Omwake-Dearborn Chapel on Wednesday, April 27. Heading the list of award winners were Crissi Harrison and Luke Samples, who were awarded the Lomax and Kirkland Awards for the top female and male senior athletes, and Crystal Bonner and Jeff Abdelnour, who were given the Wurster Awards for team leadership. Harrison, a volleyball player from Hickory, NC, was named the Lomax Award winner. She led the Lady Indians with 338 kills this season and her 4.12 average per game was just shy of the school record. Her .301 career hitting percentage ranks third all-time. Harrison was a two-time all-conference selection and helped the team to the 2002 SAC Championship. Samples, a quarterback on the football team from Elkin, NC, earned the Kirkland Award. He was a four-year starter for the Tribe and re-wrote the Catawba passing record book. Among his career marks are most passing yards (9,650) and most touchdowns (74). Samples was a three-time All-SAC performer and was the 2003 conference offensive Player of the Year. He helped the team to a pair of conference titles and three NCAA II playoff berths. Bonner, a volleyball player from Yadkinville, NC, and Abdelnour, a baseball pitcher from Cohoes, NY, were the recipients of the Wurster Awards for leadership. Bonner switched from hitter to libero as a senior to better aid the team, while always having great compassion for her teammates. Abdelnour saw action as a spot reliever for two seasons before moving to a starter’s role. He led the team in 2005 with a 9-2 record. He made others on the team better by his positive outlook, attitude and work ethic. Other top awards went to senior’s Hope Miller, of Newton, NC, and Dustin Cox, of China Grove, NC, who was the recipients of the SAAC Award for the highest cumulative GPA’s. Miller, a volleyball player, posted a 3.99 GPA as an accounting major, while Cox, a football player, had a 3.57 GPA while majoring in business.
